Ewe’ll love this great day out in Yorkshire!
In 1992 Paul Theakston had a dream that a brewery with traditional values and rescued equipment could compete with the big companies and their mass produced beer.
Over 20 years since the founding of Black Sheep Brewery, it is clear that the dream became a reality and a visit to hear all about the tumultuous journey makes for an amazing day out.
Taking a “shepherded” tour of the brewery is a must and here you will see the process of brewing in full swing.
Beer will be bubbling in the fermenting rooms that still include Yorkshire Square Fermenting Vessels which were developed over 200 years ago and you will learn all about how Black Sheep brews its award-winning beers; from the selection of ingredients to the science behind the process.
Of course no tour would be complete without trying a few samples, however if drinking on an empty stomach is not for you then grab something to eat first in the aptly named Bistro & Baa…r.
As expected the menu resonates Yorkshire and includes a Yorkshire Beef and Riggwelter Ale pie which is good and hearty.
Make sure to visit the shop before you leave to pick up your Black Sheep branded gifts and a case of your favourite beer.
The Black Sheep Brewery offers a great experience and it is no surprise that visitors keep flocking back.
